in america for anything, it's for a bad reason. when they were flowing into iraq to martyr themselves trying to kill american troops in iraq, al qaeda documents seized by the u.s. army in iraq showed the little town of derna in libya sent more volunteers to die in iraq in 2006 and 2007 than any other place in the entire arab world. libya, per capita, as a country, sent more fighters to iraq than any other country, but it was specifically derna, that town, that sent the highest number of fighters. the most. full stop. and in 2008 the man who would become our ambassador, christopher stevens, he went to derna to assess the state of militancy and anti-americanism there. .and his cable back to washington actually used the bruce willis movie "diehard" as an analysis for understanding how intense the local attitudes were there about jihad. once the uprising against moammar gadhafi was under way, cnn reported this june that al qaeda central, the part that used to be headed by bin laden, al qaeda central dispatched a top operator from the tribal areas in pakistan to go to derna, to go to that part of

taken us out of iraq. president obama who has waged a tough war against al qaeda and has gone off the leadership note tbli osama bin laden who has taken out from the terrorist on yemen -- and president obama because of the actions in the very pressive record has boosted american credibility in some parts of the world. governor romney has been trying to assert that president obama is not strong enough on foreign policy. he hasn't supported israel enough. or not as tough as he should be with china. i'm not sure that's getting through. i wonder if romney might be better adviced to articulate in a more detailed way how he would change american and foreign and security policy and how do we deal with china, russia, get out of afghanistan with i have 68,000 men and tbhim uniform in afghanistan. the debate start as you know next week, it looks like foreign policy will be a part part of the debate in the campaign. i think it's healthy we discuss the issues. >> host: i want your comments from out there from the viewers. for nicholas burns who is up in boston. he's teaching a harvard. he spe
hard to get this dofnlt i hope we can confirm our ambassadors to iraq and afghanistan, and the continuing resolution to fund the government for six months. republicans say this congress has been unproductive. but if republicans want to know why it's been unproductive, they should take a look in the mirror. benjamin franklin once said, "well-done is better than well-said." close quote. "well-done is better and well-said." so it is time republicans stopped talking about how much they wanted to get things done and started working with us to actually get things done. the presiding officer: the republican leader. mr. mcconnell: yesterday dozens of republican senators came to the senate floor one after the other to register their complete frustration with the way democrats are running this place. never before -- never -- have a president and a majority party in the senate done so little to address challenges as great as the ones our nation faces right now. never. i mean, we've got a $16 trillion debt, and they haven't bothered to put together a budget in three years. they ha
they were doing and fight on battlefields in afghanistan and iraq. as jennifer points out, some of them doing are seven, eight years old at the time this happened. for them those pictures look like a movie from another time but something they live with and for in many ways every single day. our thanks to jennifer griffin at the pentagon. bill: before we came on the air you heard some of the families down there at ground zero talk about how some of kids are in college and set to graduate from high school. what a path they have taken. joining me now, retired four-star general jack keane, former vice chief of staff for the army and also a fox news military analyst and good morning, to you, sir. >> good morning, bill. bill: when you analyze the war on terror 11 years down the road now it is stunning how unrecognizeable al qaeda is today. yes they want to do harm but 11 years later, this group, the fight was truly taken to them, and now you wonder, the future for this organization, how capable or incapable they might be, how do you reflect on that today, general? >> well, first of all i was
have massive problems to deal with still in syria. >> there are clear parallels between syria and iraq. the biggest crisis of his time during the secretary general. he opposed the military occupation and his outspoken in his criticism for president bush's push for force. >> they were so determined to take action that i'm not sure they were ready to listen. when you're in that situation, you do make mistakes. you provoke others. >> he says the echoes of the war are with us all today, even in syria. >> the war in iraq exercised to the jihadists who rushed to fight. we are likely to see the same in syria if we do not handle it properly. >> that was last week for the c- span program, "after words peak of the most high-profile defector has described how they helped him escape his home land. french services helped him escape, but he refused to reveal more the details in the fear he could endanger people's lives. his defection was seen as a major blow to the damascus government. he is being touted as a potential figurehead for the opposition. members of the new parliament have elected and aca
," which was somewhat satisfying for someone from my background. no one would argue we were at war in iraq or afghanistan. i wanted evidence he believed we were at war with the groups that had attacked us on 9/11. in august 2009, my wife and i were in phoenix, ariz., for a vfw convention. president obama was the speaker. the president explicitly said, "we are at war with al qaeda and its affiliates." foreign and domestic, law enforcement intelligence. the president was going to use all the authority he had in his backpack like his predecessor. law enforcement authorities when they were useful, but he would not limit himself just to law enforcement authority. he would actually use his authority as commander in chief. after a few weeks in office, president obama was awarded the nobel peace prize. some have said he wanted because he was not president bush and the europeans wanted to confirm that fact. do you recall his acceptance speech in scandinavia? do you recall at the scene at? i watched him carefully. he was here at the protium -- podium and teh camera is here. you can see teh back o --
because of iraq and because of guantanamo. they hated us because of the torture -- he used the word and accuses his own country ever torturing. and he is now apologizing and promising to change course. we would no longer be tough. we would be loved. we would show compassion. and we would get out of iraq. he set a deadline for afghanistan. he doesn't support the green revolution in iran. he shows the ayatollahs tremendous respect. he essentially protects them when they are under attack. he gets nowhere on the iran nuclear issue. he is equivocal in the arab spring. he leads from behind in libya. the theory was if we go soft and we are very nice, if we -- if we say [speaking in arabic [enough times, it will be all right. he decided, the theory and therefore the practice is going to be, retreat and withdraw. remember the line he uses? the tide of war is receding. >> sean: exactly. >> that means the tide of american power is receding. and the reason that american interests, schools, embassies, businesses are aflame in the middle-east from tunis to south asia is because things don't happe
to step forward and defend our nation. it is a generation that fought in iraq and still fight in afghanistan. let us dedicate our own lives to giving back to our great nation. as one of our nation possibly%, the strength of our democracy has always rested on the willingness of those who believe in its volume and the will to serve to give something back to this country. it is my privilege to introduce to you the man who spoke those words and lives them every day, our secretary of defense, leon panetta. [applause] >> mr. president, mrs. obama, general dempsey, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, and in particular the family members who lost a loved one here on 9/11. 11 years ago, on a morning very much like this, a terrorist attack the symbols of american- trained. -- american strength. they took the lives of citizens from more than 90 countries. it was the worst terrorist attack on america in our history. today people gather across the united states and around the world to remember the tragic events of 9/11. some take part in ceremonies like this. others spent time in q
, which clearly is and there are armed groups all around, it's almost like iraq or afghanistan, where those embassies have to provide really firm security around the ambassador. and you know that. around iraq and afghanistan. they hire not even local security guards. they get nationals have other countries. mongolians and other countrys to work so they don't get paid off to get out of there. >> guest: baghdad, and kabul are the gold standard in terms of defending embassy people and staff and consuls and certainly in the embassy, itself. the reality is, we would not say this, but we know the situation is so volatile and the threat is so high in those countries that are own security forces capable of defending the institution, regardless of the capacity of the security forces. security forces grew in capacity over the years and they were able to hem us. i think when we determine the investigation of what took place here we will find out that we should have had a much largeer and capable security force of our own, protecting that consulate. >> bret: how does this happen, do you think, ge
, then we go to iraq, saddam hussein, he was a good boy at one point. we have to learn to shoot straight when it comes to foreign policy. host: i have to get some other voices in here. bob? go ahead. caller: thank you for taking my call. i had a personal remembrances about 9/11. i woke up at 11:00. my mother, who had died of alzheimer's, said i needed to see this thing on television. i was speaking with a friend of mine over at the spartan route. i said -- you know, these guys are muslim fundamentalists and fanatics. they might have their real names on the manifest. go look at that. follow the money. they went back and confirmed what the fbi report said from earlier that year, which had been kind of pushed under. we got lucky in that times square bombing. we solved that one. thank god the bomb did not off. but you know, we have had 10,000 people die in that war. thank god we got osama bin laden and it was a police action. thank you so much. host: how should we mark the day? last night on facebook we ask all of you to comment on how america has changed in the 11 years. host: you can put y
. it is certainly not at the level of iraq or afghanistan in terms of threats to western companies. there are some sensitivities you have to observe like the -- they decreed banning it. it does not mean it is law and it is that kind of ambiguous thing. for the moment, you have to go with libyan security. what else can i say? i think that for companies investing in libya now, relationships are a big priority. the startup costs are significant. the restrictions, the legal environment is inherited with gaddafi so you can only own some much amount of stock and that kind of thing. that will change but the government has bigger fish to fry now. i do not expect much change in the next year-18 months. i expect turnover in the ministry and places like that. and now is probably the time to start creating relationships that to sustain you in the long term. >> with regard to the question on oil, this is a real concern in the east and what we saw prior to the july 7 election was a pro-i taney armed group shot down the facility. certainly this issue of oil as a leverage by groups in the east could emerge. i am
have decimated al qaeda. osama bin laden is dead. he said we would end the war responsibly in iraq. we've done that. he has restored relationships around the world. i spend every day up at the united nations where i have to interact with 192 other countries. i know how well the united states is viewed. i know that our standing is much improved. and it's translated into important support for strong american positions, for example -- >> is it inappropriate for governor romney to level the criticism he leveled? >> i'm not going to get into politics, david. that's not my role in this job. but i think the american people welcome and appreciate strong, steady, unified leadership, bipartisan, in times of challenge. and for those men and women in our diplomatic service, including those we tragically lost, they look to our leadership to be unified and strong. >> let's talk about leadership in the world, and as the nuclear threat from iran. another area of tension between the united states and israel. in just a couple of minutes, we will show our interview with the prime minister of israel, benj
